Re: The Pine Hill Railway (PHRy) - a Norwegian Garden Railway

Do they run well? I'll probably build some for my line quite soon - I wasn't sure how well they'd run with the long fixed coupling? They run well. The logs do not move longitudinally because of this spikes in the bottom of the cradle. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6x9vdcunr4ee4dc/Cradle%20500.JPG?raw=1...

Re: The Pine Hill Railway (PHRy) - a Norwegian Garden Railway

Re: R/C and whistle for a RH Jennie

I have 2 other steam engines, and I dont look so much at those pressure gauges either.
I maybe want to install the pressure gauge later.
